The story pays tribute to many known and unsung heroes of the South African struggle for liberation.

SMILE Music was established in 2006. We provide services in Arts, Entertainment and Personal Development Spaces. Sipho Mnyakeni is the sole director of the company but works with a number of other people based on project requirements. SMILE Music occasionally collaborates with smaller organizations or unregistered arts practitioners or University arts or student bodies to present joint shows or events. Through such, we assist in the development of these artists through exposure and mentoring. SMILE has positioned itself as a platform for exposure and unearthing raw talent. We link our music to theatre, inspiration and social facilitation.
